There Stands a Rock (Hay Una Roca)

Buenos Dias. Como estas? (How are you?) Ultimamente, el mundo se ha vuelto loco. (Lately, the world has gone crazy.) En primer lugar, todo el mundo tenía miedo del virus covid-19. (First, everyone was afraid of the covid-19 virus.) Después de eso, estaban presionando para salir de sus casas para que la economía no se desplome. (After that, they were pushing to get out of their houses so the economy wouldn’t crash.) Después, han estado quemando y saqueando negocios. (Next, they have been burning and looting businesses.) Me parece que alguien quiere que nuestra economía se desplome. (It looks to me like someone wants our economy to crash.) El mundo se ha vuelto loco. (The world has become crazy.) Lo único que podemos hacer es mirar a Cristo. (The only thing we can do is look to Jesus.) ‘El tiene todo las repuestas. (He has all the answers.) ‘Amense. (Love one another.)
